Cute Books For The Holidays

Posted on December 18, 2017 by

One of my favourite things about this time of year is getting some uninterrupted reading time over Christmas and New Year. If you’re looking for some new books to keep you occupied, these all look super cute. Best of all, books are easily available right through the holidays from your local bookstore, Amazon or digital download. I’ve put Amazon links below but shop around for the best delivery options near you.

Studio Ghibli kawaii art books
Totoro kawaii art books

The Art of Miyazaki is a whole range of books (UK / USA) and a must for Studio Ghibli fans. Each book covers a specific film with Miyazaki’s original drawings, paintings and storyboards. I can’t imagine ever getting bored of looking through these.

Noodoll’s first activity book (UK / USA) is aimed at children but don’t tell me you don’t want to play with those cute little Ricemonsters! They pop out of the cover so you can slot them into locations around Ricetown along with drawing prompts, colouring and other fun stuff. This would be great to have around if you have young relatives to entertain.

I’ve been reading a lot of manga this year, thanks to Manga Rock. It’s a website and app that gives you access to fan-translated scans of Japanese manga that haven’t been officially released in English. I’m a huge Ai Yazawa fan so it was amazing to finally be able to read her early series Gokingo Monogotari (Neighbourhood Story). It’s about a group of art, fashion and design students who start a creative club to help sell their work at a local market. The art is so cute and there’s lots of romantic drama too. (This site is now INKR).

kawaii food recipe books
Kawaii Sweet Treats

Kawaii food books are always fun to browse, even if you never quite get motivated to try the recipes. Little Miss Bento’s books (UK / USA) are all super cute and will give you inspiration for crafts as well as sweet and savoury treats. Natasja reviewed Kawaii Sweet Treats earlier this year too.

And finally, Pusheen! This mini colouring book (UK / USA) is perfect for carrying around with you so you can take a break when the holiday madness gets too much.

What cute books have you enjoyed this year? I’d love to hear your recommendations.
